Yesterday I attended Fibrations, a brand new event held in the orchard at St Anne's Academy, downtown Victoria. When I first got wind of this event I was so happy because the cancellation of the Victoria Fibre Fest was a major blow (what can I say... I'm a fibre fair junky!). There was very little info on vendors or other details when the event was first made public and I wasn't really sure what to expect in terms of scale and appeal in the marketplace ( I was hoping for yummy yarn :)

And because this wasn't just a knitting/spinning event there was so much variety in the marketplace.

I love that Rachel is knitting, it just ties it all in for me!

Shannon and I were like the paparazzi, running around, snapping away! People must have thought we were nuts!

The vibes were so good at this event. It was really well orchestrated yet it felt so relaxing and informal, my needles and I could have hung out under those apple trees all day long.

I'm really glad that Shannon and I stuck around until the very end. We had the opportunity to sit and knit with a handful of the days organizers and volunteers. Thank you so much for making this event a HUGE success!
